Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I would like to create shapefiles which I'll use in my program to determine the country, region and city of a given GPS coordinate. Eventually I would want to cover the entire world, but I'm ok with starting with one country. What's the right way to do that?

Unsure about the purpose of a shapefile but look up Overpass ql 'is_in' using co-ordinates.
